Creative non-fiction

I don’t think I really grok creative non-fiction.  Having read this explanation of creative non-fiction, I  know the basics. It’s the use of literary devices and techniques to tell a factual story. Fair enough. But I still think I don’t actually “get” it. Maybe it’s because I have a bias against memoirs, and often creative non-fiction takes that form?
